Socrates Café

Thursdays 2:00 pm

Following Potluck you have chance to improve your English, through lively discussion based on the Socratic method (a form of inquiry and discussion, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas).

I enjoy so much the Thursdays at potluck lunch and the Socrates Café at International House. It is so great to find persons with such beautiful energy, principles, thoughts…when I come home after class I am so full of happiness…it’s like my soul has been understood…I only want to hold in my heart the good times I have lived through, the good moments and the few things that really matter – a hug from you, a word of courage and a handshake from my teacher, a glance and whisper from my new friends from Venezuela, Brazil, China, Guatemala, Japan, and India…all of these moments make me know that the House is magic…inside and outside, too!
— Catarina Lavaredas, from Portugal
